Bud Powell has been acclaimed as the father of modern jazz piano for adapting Charlie Parker’s bebop innovations to his own instrument. On this medium up-tempo Oscar Pettiford blues (also known as “Blues in the Closet”), his improvisation, with its agile scalar passages, occasional harmonic dissonance, and inventive, Parker-like phrases, illustrates why Powell was the model for generations of jazz pianists.
